Students jump for a healthy heart

Valdosta - South Georgia students are jumping their way to a healthy heart.

About 800 students from W.G. Nunn Elementary took part in a Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser Friday. In addition to raising money for the American Heart Association, the students also learned some valuable lessons in heart health.

"They actually have fun while they learn, that's our motto and we read a little bit and they know that our heart is a muscle, even kindergartners know how to check their pulse rate," said Wendy Luke, P.E. Teacher.

The students raised about $1,000 for the American Heart Association and they're still collecting more donations.
